I am a high school student and I picked this book to read for my Econ class. I've never been one to be interested in books like these, but I thought it would be a good idea for class. Going into the book I had no idea about who Lee was. Now after reading the book, I can tell you a lot about him. In this book he covers just about every topic that involves the government. Some of the things people know about and some of the things I had no idea even happened. He is a very well educated man, I believe. When I started to read the book I didn't think that I would be able to follow along with what Lee was trying to say, but he wrote it in a very easy to understand way. I would consider telling other people my age to read this book, because it really opens your eyes to what is actually going on in our government.
